There is life after Merino! I have lots of lovely fibre from a number of different British Sheep Breeds in my Etsy Store, all hand dyed with natural dyes in Yorkshire, England.
There’s Bluefaced Leicester, one of the lustre wools. BFL has a longer staple, is next-to-the-skin soft and takes the dye with a lovely shine.
Jacob is a little “sheepier,” not necessarily for next-to-the-skin garments, but great for outerwear like hats and gloves.
Shetland is great woollen spun to keep it light and airy and wonderfully warm.
And, last but not least, Wensleydale. A wonderful long wool, the fibre really sucks up the dye giving beautiful, strong, jewel colours with a sheen almost like silk.
